And the winner is …

Christi from KnittiChristi.wordpress.com! Well done! We invite you to be the first guest poster at ukcrochetpatterns!

The Big Fat Fluffy Ginger Independent Adjudicator was practically USELESS. Loud Daughter and I had to chase him around the kitchen to try and make him touch his nose on the list of entrants … which he did … eventually! He wouldn’t miaow when we read the list out (but then became very vocal ten minutes later).

Soooo, Christi, we”ll refer you back to the original contest post and look forward to hearing from you via the Contact page :>

Congrats! Can’t wait to see your pattern! We are SO excited about this and are brewing up the next chance to win a guest posting spot already! We love that you guys love this idea!

We hit 100 followers! Thank you! Now win a chance to Guest Post!

As a big thank you for reaching 100 followers, we would like to offer one of you the chance to be our first Guest Poster at ukcrochetpatterns. We’re all about promoting Crochet and its talented people!

TO ENTER: you are welcome to either leave a comment on this post saying “ME, DUDES!” or “Wazzaaaaap” etc, or send a message via the CONTACT page.

If you would like to be considered, here are the requirements (you don’t have to have these ready until we confirm that you’ve won):

  1. We would like your post to contain a link to a free crochet pattern in UK terms. We would prefer you to have written it yourself but it’s okay if you haven’t! It can be any skill level. If it’s someone else’s pattern, please tell us why you’ve chosen it.
  2. We would like your post to be up to 200 words long (but we won’t count :>) and talk about crochet – how you got into it or why you love it or impart some crochet-related wisdom (we like this best!) or something like that.
  3. We would love to see links to your blog/website or online shops. We would be happy for you to promote yourself and your stuff!
  4. We would like you to post on your blog  that you won, and link back to us in the post.

Any questions, please feel free to ask!

Our Big Fat Ginger Independent Adjudicator will pick the winner on Thursday 3rd June at 10pm, most likely by sitting on a piece of paper with your name on it. Or possibly licking it. Or maybe by making a disgusted face at it. Or by ignoring it and walking off.

Don’t worry if you don’t win: there will be another opportunity in July!

16 more followers until our little contest!

We only need 16 more followers/subscribers to reach 100! Thank you so much, everyone!!! We are so glad that so many of you find what we’re about useful. And we love feedback :>

So, very soon we will be announcing the winner of the draw to be the first guest poster on ukcrochetpatterns!

Win the chance to be our first guest poster!

We are motoring towards 100 subscribers/followers very quickly! Thank you so much!

As a token of gratitude, when we reach 100 email subscribers and followers, we will be offering one of you  the chance to guest post on ukcrochetpatterns! You will be able to toot your horn as much as you like, with links or photos or a tutorial or all of the above. As long as your content offers something free to our wonderful readers, you will also be able to link to your Etsy or Folksy shops, etc.

We will ask an independent adjudicator (a big, fat, fluffy, ginger adjudicator) to randomly select the winner! The only criteria for entry is that you are a subscriber to our mailing list.
